Following departure from Kahului Commuter Airlines Terminal , you fly along the south shore of Maui past Haleakala (or weather permitting, we’ll fly over Haleakala!) and then cross the Alenuihaha Channel to the northern tip of the Big Island. You fly over the Parker Ranch, view the world class observatories at the top of Mauna Kea and fly over Kilauea and proceed to the active volcano area. Leaving the active area, you fly over Hilo and Akaka Falls and follow the Hamakua Coast of the north shore.
